Anton Chekhov's The Duel

Synopsis: In ANTON CHEKHOV'S THE DUEL, escalating animosity between two men with opposing philosophies of life is played out against the backdrop of a decaying seaside resort along the Black Sea coast. Laevsky is a dissipated romantic given to gambling and flirtation. He has run off to the sea with beautiful, emotionally empty, Nadya, another man's wife. Laevsky has now grown tired of her, but two obstacles block his route to escape: he is broke, and he faces the absolute enmity of Von Koren, an arrogant zoologist and former friend who can no longer tolerate Laevsky's irresponsibility. Soon Laevsky confronts Von Koren, accusing him of meddling in his affairs, but Von Koren maneuvers a criticism Laevsky makes of their mutual friend, Dr. Samoylenko, into a challenge to a duel. Utterly discombobulated and honor bound, Laevsky agrees to this absurdity -- a duel it shall be! A duel as comically inadvertent as it is inevitable.

No problem and just between us.

I have to tell you that

something about suffering.

Oh, the kingdom does not have this.

Why is it hidden?

- Because if you come to me shows.

First I have to find the relationship when

- Yes ma'am.

Good morning Miss.

I'm just seeing the merchandise.

Do not distant from what?

- Has a fine eye Miss.

I'm afraid that we can not run

Good morning Miss Fiodora.

I missed the meeting.

If I state something right.

I checked what the money has seen caught,

what a pleasure to see her at the top.

Forgive sir. I do later.

This is not vinegar,

this is oil with salt.

Vanelesky I told a few days ago,

Well, this is someone who

maybe you have a little sympathy.

This is dangerous for

companies that may color it.

Why so much hate your neighbors?

No hate, just I know him well.

Even since before I got here every

day came and gossiped about her mistress.

I can not let you talk to

and a splendid friend.

Once Already?

Now it is who sleeps all day.
